"None of us perceive the world in exactly the same way. Our oneness lies in a yearning to touch and to understand. My work is an endeavor to share my thoughts and vision through form and color and relationships, hoping to charge my images with meaning which will reach across the spaces between us."

Over the years I’ve learned to appreciate excellence although I rarely achieve it. The closest I come is in the ephemeral areas of concept and integrity. But, since I believe that my next effort will be my best, I will continue to pursue excellence.

The earliest appearance of the cross in human history is the simple image of equalateral crossed bars. Perhaps this symbolized the concept of earth and sky, the four directions, and combined within a circle, the sun wheel. The pivotal center point represents the creative power of God.

The cardinal points-north, south, east, west, are important in the cosmology of many cultures, especially those of the American Indian where each direction has a specific totem animal.

These crosses incorporate Southwestern symbols etched into Baltic Amber, a spiral and 2 motifs derived from Navajo rug designs.
